|From The Kitschy Corner $12|
Oh how I love thee. Over the years the Smurfs have been frozen in time, ageless and collecting Smufy memorabilia can be fun and exciting. Thousands of licensed items have been made. I wonder how some have survived after all these years. Many are worth lots of money, others are just so unique you have to have them. Here are a few of my favorites.
|Smurf House on Etsy at SleepsWithTurtles $75|
In our day we have the smurf house and figures. The earlier figures were sold in Hallmark stores and sold in tiny boxes. Over the decades a huge variation of smurfs have been made in several countries with many different markings, colors and variations.
1981 Smurfette from The Constant Gatherer
Mold markings are often found on the bottoms in the form of a tiny number, and although the date and stamp may indicate that year the smurf was created, not necessarily the year the smurf was made. Due diligence should be done on investigating your smurf value. Here's a great site to start with called "BlueBuddies.com" which boasts that it's the world's largest smurf compendium and we tend to agree!

The Kitschy Corner has a lot of period memorabilia that's worth a look see stocked by Lona who is in the "Michiana" area. She says, "If you're ever in the Southern Michigan/ Northern Indiana area, stop by Booth #23 at the Michiana Antique Mall! I have lots of amazing finds on sale."
|Smurf Stickers at Apple Picker Vintage $16|
So many Smurfs so little time. Gargamel and his cat Azrael kept the smurfs on their toes. Papa Smurf and Smurfette looked different than the rest. Finding vintage Azrael Merchandise is getting skimpy. It's hard to find that cute cat. Meow!
